    • The fact that it costs a lot, and is such hassle setting up. I would consider it a factor if to trust it.

    • No, I wouldn't trust anyone other than NSA cuz there are chances that they will sell my info to NSA without my notice. At least NSA won't "sell" my info.

      Done trolling, yes, they are registered and validated companies so chances they ditch me is way less compared to those companies using $9 3 years positive ssls.

      I have two rules for SSL.

      1. No PositiveSSL

      2. No CloudFlare free SSL

      If you pass the criteria, I don't care if you have EV SSL or not. Even a RapidSSL is fine to me.

      I use PositiveSSL on two sites of mine. Both of them don't really need SSL, I'm just a sucker for that green https :P...

    • No, knowing that a green bar is connected with some address and business name sure looks nice but does not make something more trustworthy.

      It's like buying a safe that comes with a $100 flag that means you have a mailing address, and buying a $20 safe without a flag when they both use locks from the same manufacturer.

    • Go for something like AlphaSSL.
      If you know what a 'rogue' antivirus is, their payment pages use PositiveSSL. Comodo literally gives out the SSL certificates to its' resellers.

      With EV it's not about cost but about data verification. I don't care if they are free as long as data is verified by someone and the company gives substantial insurance in case their verification would fail.

      Looks like Chrome, but as Chrome uses the internal certificate storage I think the view will depend on the OS used. ;)

    • The most affordable EV I've heard of still cost $200~300 a year.
      For me, it doesn't matter if not on a E-commerce site. A cheap PositiveSSL, or even free StartSSL should be enough.
      Cloudfare SNI SSL is an option but may encounter support issues on older devices.

      But for E-commerce sites by incorporated companies, an EV certificate does matter.

    • EV SSL does not mean the site isn't a scam or not, it just means the person was willing to pay for the green bar and is a registered company somewhere. The EV does not matter to me. Where you get the SSL certificate from does not matter to me. What does matter is where it's used, and the ciphers on your web server.

    • Actually why not PositiveSSL?

      Telegram Me and Arch the way out.

    • LeeLee Member

      I would not go out of my way to check the SSL, other than to see one is there. Whilst it does offer more checking I don't think you need to look to far to see those that use it and you will still avoid.

      It's better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt

      Well actually maybe i will choose this: https://www.startssl.com/?app=30

      200 usd/2year. Its a fair pay. I done once the validation with comodo argh... not was fast but.. possible to do!

      Well i have to secure 10+ domain so... thats the best way for now.

      +59.90 for StartSSL™ Verified

      To apply for Extended Validation (EV) the "Certificate Requester" must first obtain a valid Class 2 Identity Validation

      from https://www.startssl.com/?app=30#requirements

      where's that $140 come from? from their site still US $ 199.90 for EV SSL and nowhere mention about these price including validation fee. or I miss something

      EV SSL is irrelevant. The company can better show they care about security by enabling HTTP strict transport security, having a good privacy policy, etc.

      Ehm, we were able to set one up with literally no hassle thanks to geotrust.
      Like, it literally took a few hours in real, they didn't even request us to disable our whois protection just one call and one email and a halfassed uk made company, comodo is another story doe.

      So no, I don't really trust it like the old times.

      I heard good things about geotrust but I tried Comodo and it is a big hassle with them.

    • As per My Point-of-View, Why We Can trust EV SSL Website?

      1. It Displays Green Colored Address Bar which is #1 signal of online security
      2. Organization name will be displayed in URL which indicated website is verified & the business is legitimate.

      Any private person or sole trader can get an EV cert. It makes almost zero difference to a Domain Validated cert - One call and sending them company documents or an ID copy, issued in a few hours. I can get you one WITHOUT any call and just an ID/company copy and no address proof (Cross-signed by Geotrust).

      I do NOT put any single cent more trust in an EV cert, same shit as non-EV - SSL is SSL. End of story.

      after yts.re (no longer in service/torrent site) using EV SSL, I lost my trust in EV.

      Comodo is the biggest trouble I've had with a provider in years, one of my coworkers was working on getting a EV SSL and they just kept throwing him back and forward in the chats and emails to the point where he basically rage quitted.

      So yea GeoTrust is really nice.

      My vote for EV SSL, strict verification process and the green address bar can add more trust on the website. Users can easily identify that the website is authenticate and safe. I found an infographic that explains the authentication process and importance of EV SSL certificate.

      Yes, EV SSL Certificate is trustworthy in comparison of other ssl because of its detailed verification process for the organization.

      I don't trust more because they use SSL, but SSL is a must for a real business. Without SSL, I know all the data are transferred in plain text over the internet. SSL means my data is encrypted. I don't care whether it is an EV one or not. I think SSL should be used on every website. The encryption should be free, while the authentication could be payable. Shame on the big browser vendors making a scary red cross to threaten users if it is a self signed certificate. They mixed the concepts of the encryption and authentication, merely for selling their certificates at a ridiculously high price.

    • Since 2004 till now, I've seen so many websites using EV SSL, but many of them also died/run with client/customer money.

      So, EV SSL only makes me know that they're registered, but still, someday they will gone.

      For example, just go with HYIP/Ponzy site, many of them having EV SSL, but they died after having many profit and run with client money

      EV SSL gives more trust to client with the "green bar", due to it's verification process
